Description

If you’re unfortunate enough (like myself) to be born in 1993 you’ll no doubt be aware that finding a quality wine from your year of birth is no easy task, fortunately our friends at Toro Albala have bottled liquid gold with the 1993 Don Pedro Ximenez. The nose is immense with layer upon layer of complexity, you’re arrayed with a waft of dates, figs, sun-soaked raisins, mocha, golden mango, cinnamon, vanilla and baked plums. This is continued on the palate, be warned though that this is not a wine for the faint hearted as the sugar content comes in at approximately 393g/litre so make sure you have your dentist on speed dial! This is still a very balanced wine though and the alcohol at 17% combined with well structured acidity both help to rein in the sweetness. Perfect to drink now but this will keep for many many decades, additionally if you don’t manage to finish the bottle this wine will easily keep for several months once opened.
